Day of shame in opening of Poarch Creek casino
As patrons gaze at sharks circling a 16,000 gallon tank on their way to over 2,500 new slot machines, the Poarch no doubt hope that these prospective customers view their facility as unique. Indeed, Wind Creek Casino is a unique place, but not for reasons Poarch would want you to know. It is unique in that it is the only tribal casino in America that should have never been built in the first place. It is unique in being a disgraceful affront to American Indians and American taxpayers alike. It’s unique because it is the only tribal casino ever to be built by destroying a National Historic Landmark, the historic Hickory Ground.
